So, while it is cool that there is no snow. That your commute is smooth as butter, your heating bill is lower let it be know that perhaps there is something scary going on. Our household has made efforts to minimize our driving. Our daughter is taken to school on a surly big dummy. My teenage son rides to the grocery store where he works. And the mrs walks 1.5 miles to work and back at the coffee shop. I ride to work and back each day.
So doing all this earns me credits to get out to Iowa once in a while. I gave up doing criteriums and cyclocross races that demand 1-3 hours of driving to ride around a park for 30 minutes. I started thinking I was being dumb.
Anywho, I just wanted to convey that you can commute to the store, school, work. And truly let's stop worrying about that car image anymore. It is so lame. Mileage so far for January is around 330 miles. I am really tired of the wind. Today it broke me
